My 3-year-old, 7-year-old and I, read "The Open Pillow," and we all enjoyed this book. The artwork was beautiful, and the book's overall message: fitting in spaces you don't belong is nothing we should fret over; we outgrow people, places and things as we evolve. Not to mention, those places in which we go, hoping to "fit in" or mold to our surroundings, are temporary; finding our perfect fit lasts a lifetime.
Here are my 7-year-old's thoughts on "The Open Pillow."
